PILES=FISTULA! SVSSga 

> Our Proposition. 

We treat Piles, Fistula and diseases of the rectum on a positive guarantee and accept 
10 money until cured. After the money is paid we give a written guarantee that should 
;he patient ever be afflicted again we will treat them free of charge although we know they 
cannot ever have piles again. We have made a specialty of these diseases for 26 years. 

We send free and postpaid a two-hundred page treatise on rectal diseases, containing 
the names of many thousands of people cured. To ladies we send an illustrated book of 
one hundred pages, entitled " Plain Talk to Sick Women." Write to-day for these valuable 
books which are sent free, and which contain much valuable information about rectal 

diseases. 

Write to This Dunkard Minister. 

Barnum, Minnesota, February 4, 1902. 
Drs. Thornton & Minor, Kansas City, Mo. 

Dear Doctors: — I suffered greatly for fifteen years from Piles, Fissure and Ulceration of the Bowels, until 
as a last resort 1 applied to you for treatment, on January 17, 1900. At this writing, February 4, 1902, I am as 
sound and well as a man can possibly be. The dyspepsia and stomach trouble have left me. The trouble of 
constipation has also left me, as I firmly believe, as a result from the seven weeks' treatment by you. I also 
wish to say that I consider vour manner of treatment both safe and successful and simple. 

In short, I fail to find words to express my gratitude to you, and also to God for providentially directing 
me to you. 

I am perfectly satisfied with the treatment received myself. I also talked with a great many, and the gen- 
eral verdict, without a single exception, was entire satisfaction. With best regards, 1 beg to remain 

Yours truly, 

A. H. REEVES, Dunkard Minister.

CENTBNNIf\L RLMftNflG FOR 1903. 

JUPITER IS CALLED THE GOVERNING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



The Year in General. — Will be tolerably 
food, yet more humid than dry ; but like Saturn 
its predecessor, with long winter and terrible 
cold it will be late so that grain and seed will 
grow at least three weeks later than in other 
years. 

Spring.— Until the 1st of May it will be cold 
and damp; in the middle for ten or twelve days, 
lemperate and thawing weather; after until 
the end, cold and damp. 

Summeu. — The beginning will be cold and 
cUmp, in the middle it will be good, interpersed 
whh much thunder; at the end, quite warm. If 
in this year the Summer be dry, which scarcely 
happens in twenty-one years, the grain will be 
dear. If an Eclipse of the Sun occurs in Febru- 
ary; March, April or May, the Summer will be 
dry. 

Fall. — Will have an abundance of rain. 

Winter. —The beginning will' have a few 
days quite cold and much snow; the later part 
will be quite mild, without snow, yet very windy. 

Spring Crops.— This will be a good year for 
barley. If the Summer be not dry, the quality 
and yield will be good. A good supply should 
be provided, as in the two following years little 
is to be expected, Oats, peas and millet will 
be a light crop. Flax and hemp will be small 
but good. Hay and aftermath will be good, but 



not in all places; so also with cabbage and 
turnips. There will be but little hay, straw and 
fodder in the two subsequent years, therefore 
good provision should be made in this year. 

Fall Crops. — Sheep must be kept off both 
Spring and Fall crop9. Even if sheep are not 

f>astured on the grain in the Spring it will be 
ate. Notwithstanding Jupiter is inclined to 
moisture, the grain, oftentimes in this year, 
will be later than usual. 

Fall-Seeding. — It i9 better to 6ow early, 
even iithe Winter set in late, especially wheat, 
on account of the rough, dry Spring, which will 
follow; if the grain should grow too rank, which 
it seldom does, it may be pastured by sheep. 

Fruit. — There will be but little fruit, and 
corn, no acorns, and few beech nuts. 

Hops. — Yield light, but very good. 

Grape Culture. — In twenty-eight years it 
seldom occurs once that in Jupiter's reign there 
will be choice wine, but little and sour: if ad- 
verse aspects interrupt, the Fall will be late, 
and wine will be inferior. The vines need not 
be Covered early, as the winter will be late 
setting in, yet it must not be neglected, for 
after Candlemas there will be much sleet. If an 
eclipse of the Sun occurs in February, March, 
April' or May, when Jupiter, Mars or the Sua 
rule, the wine will be good.

PLAT OUST HIS BACK. 

Mr. D. E. Hasting, a well-known farmer at Horton, Iowa, says he had been ailing for years and in Febru- 
ary he was laid flat on his back, unable to do a thing. A hard lot for a farmer at the opening of spring. Two 
bottles of Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer put him on his feet, so that he surprised his folks by going out in the 
yard and chopping wood. He says that it is a pity that there are people who are yet unacquainted with the 
merits of this remedy. It is safe to say that everyone, whom Mr. Hastings meets will learn about Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer.

SOME MEMORIES OF MY FA- 
THER'S LIFE. 



BY MARY N. QUINTER. 

It is an old truth, so old that it has 
become trite, that the truest test of any 
life is its influence at home. While one 
may conceive of circumstances existing 
under which it were impossible for a life 



about him. A favor given unsought 
comes with an added grace and receives 
appreciation not accorded to a response 
to a request, though it be just as freely 
given. All that it was possible for him 
to do, to make easier the labors of the 
household, was cheerfully done. Even- 
ing always found the* house with its fires, 
the water, and wood and coal all ready 
for the morning. And a clock might al-

to attain its full meed of achievement — be- 
cause forsooth the winds of the home 
atmosphere are contrary — yet to him of 
whom I speak no truth is truer than the 
one referred to, for in his home and with 
his family he was, if anywhere, the true 
Christian gentleman — kind and courte- 
ous, thoughtful and considerate, careful 
and provident. No reminder of duties 
was needful, because he was quick to see 
and to use every opportunity to be help- 
ful and to lighten the labors of those 



most have been set by the regularity 
with which these duties were performed. 
" Homely duties," do I hear you say? 
Do you know that homely duties become 
holy when the "me" is left out? And 
there was no " me " in my father's life, 
for his first thought as the last was for 
others. 

An extract from a letter to me which 
I received in response to a request for 
his advice and help will illustrate this 
fact: "You should not let the conduct

lt pays to always keep on hand a reliable family 
remedy, which will take the place of the physician 
and drugstore. Many a lingering disease could have 
been arrested in its progress and speedily cured and 
many a dollar saved, if a proper remedy such as Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer had been used in time.

of your competitor for the school give 
you any trouble. You know your Chris- 
tian duty to her; try and do it. We all 
have times when we do not see as clear- 
ly, as we would like to, what our duty is, 
or what is the best course for us to 
pursue when we meet with certain 
conditions in our work, and in oth- 
er things as well. Under such cir- 
cumstances, we must use our best judg- 
ment and ask for divine guidance. We 
should be sure that we want to do just 
what is right. When we get into such 
straits as you allude to, perhaps, as a 
general rule, we had better take the 
course that is the least pleasant to our- 
selves, and thus show that we are not 
governed by a selfish motive, or a de- 
sire to promote our own ease. This will 
be cultivating the Christian principle of 
self-denial, a principle of which it may 
be said, as it is said of other principles, 
it ' is in the sight of God of great price.' " 

There is another lesson of his life 
which deserves emphasis. In his busi- 
ness dealings with those who worked for 
him, with those from whom he pur- 
chased anything, or to whom he sold 
anything, he was always careful to let 
the balance of favor or privilege fall 
away from himself. It was his worthy 
boast late in his life that never had he 
acquired anything in the way of proper- 
ty or money as the result of a " bar- 
gain," and that he had no desire for any- 
thing so acquired. No poor man was 
ever made any poorer because of my fa- 
ther's attempt to drive a bargain, with 
him. If a man working for him, having, 
as it might chance, only a small job, 
should break a half day or a day and not 
be able in consequence of the broken 
time to use the remaining time to ad- 
vantage he was paid in full. If an article 
desired was worth more than he felt able 
to pay, the dealer was not asked to sell 
it for less, but one of less worth was se- 
lected or the purchase delayed. His own 
habit in this regard was impressed upon 
us by precept and example. 

He was in the home as elsewhere a 
man of few rather than many words, 



and yet he freely shared with his home 
hearts all matters of any interest to his 
life, whether they pertained to his busi- 
ness or to his church relations. He was 
decided and firm, and was naturally of a 
quick temper, though of a kindly dispo- 
sition. Trespasses against right, neg- 
lected duties — these were summarily 
dealt with. Few things so moved him as 
irreverence of sacred things, though as 
I remember he said little concerning it. 
A sacred regard for everything in any 
way related to religious service of any 
faith whatsoever, was a part of his life, 
and we learned it as he lived it. Rev- 
erence for the Lord's Day as expressed 
in an added quietness of manner, a care- 
fulness in the choice of books, and in 
topics of conversation, was emphasized 
by his life. Memories of those quiet, 
helpful Sundays at home are benedic- 
tions now. A number of times have I 
been asked the question whether my fa- 
ther ever laughed. I am told that it is 
said that he never laughed at all. Those 
who make this statement did not know 
him. He did object to loud or noisy ex- 
pression of fun, and, as has been said, 
was particularly careful that the Lord's 
Day be quietly kept, yet real humor he 
always enjoyed. It was not unusual to 
see him laugh heartily over some inci- 
dent of home-life, or something he had 
seen or heard elsewhere. 

The picture that is most familiar, how- 
ever, is the one in which I see him in 
memory at his study table, his desk, Bi- 
ble open before him and the commen- 
taries and helps often piled high on either 
side. He loved to study, and rested not 
until every possible effort had been made, 
first to find for himself all the truths and 
lessons of the text which was the study 
of the hour, then to find from the helps 
at hand, every thought or suggestion 
which would strengthen or make more 
clear any word or phrase of the text, or 
any phase of the truth taught in it. Then 
when all the resources at hand had been 
used, and the research and note taking 
were ended, lost to all the world about 
him, he would sit in thought and medi-

In all lines of trade speculators exist. There are persons, who even want Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer to 

sell on speculation. The proprietor of this justly famous household remedy has no use for such people. With 
wise forethought, he has not placed it on the market as an article of traffic to be hawked about by jobbers and 
dealers. It is supplied to the people direct by special agents, appointed in every community, persons whom 
you know and trust and who have a heart for the suffering's of their fellow-men.

tation, until he had clothed the frame- 
work of his subject in its drapery of his 
forceful words. The word meditation 
is associated always with this picture 
and is thus defined to me. He loved his 
work and withal never lost for an in- 
stant the responsibility which was upon 
him in consequence of his acceptance of 
it. He never attended a church service 
without special preparation that he 
might be ready if his help in the serv- 
ice were needed. Always an early riser, 
he invariably rose earlier on Sunday 
morning and the first hours of that day 
were given to. additional study and medi- 
tation on his theme or themes chosen for 
the day. 

One of my earliest recollections is of 
coming at times to the breakfast table 
after the morning worship and finding 
my father absent, and in response to in- 
quiry receiving the explanation that he 
was fasting. This custom was adopted 
early in his ministry and continued 
throughout his life. No duty of any 
especial importance was undertaken 
without a day of fasting, and Good Fri- 
day was regularly so observed as a prep- 
aratory service for attending the An- 
nual Conference. On these days he did 
not entirely withdraw himself, from us. 
His usual duties in the home were not 
neglected, and we were as free to ap- 
proach him as at other times. The holi- 
ness of the day to him was not expressed 
in word, nor in any especially sanctimo- 
nious manner in his keeping of it, but we 
learned its meaning as it was defined 
and translated in his life. 

Some passages selected from his let- 
ters to us are the best comments and il- 
lustrations of his life, for he had learned 
in experience the truths he gave us in 
words. From a letter written to' my sis- 
ter, Bella Q. Myers, who was teaching 
at the time, this paragraph is taken: 

" We feel greatly interested in the suc- 
cess and prosperity of whatever you un- 
dertake, but in nothing do we feel the 
same interest as in the success of your 
Christian life. Let it be your first and 
highest concern. And if you make it 



such, and attend to your Christian duties 
faithfully, it will afford you the highest 
and most permanent enjoyment. The 
work you are engaged in, and your sur- 
roundings in life, both make it desirable, 
and indeed necessary, that you have the 
presence of divine grace continually with 
you that you may shun whatever is evil 
and meet your duties with fidelity. The 
relation, that the good bear to God as 
their Father gives them assurance that 
he will protect them from evil, and help 
them to do whatever he requires of them. 
With him for our Helper, we surely need 
not fail." 

His hopeful philosophy of life, he thus 
expresses in a letter to me: 

" The longer you live in the world, 
the more you will become confirmed in 
the truth that there are but few whose 
life flows long in a smooth current. If 
there are those who experience no trials 
and disappointments, they are exceptions 
to the general rule. But there are very 
few such, if any. Our trials and troubles 
arise from various causes. One cause 
is within ourselves — our evil nature. If 
this is not governed, and kept subdued, 
it will give us trouble. We get out of 
patience, and then everything seems to 
be an annoyance, and everything of an 
unpleasant character is magnified. The 
importance of charity in our every-day 
life, as well as in our general experience, 
cannot easily be overestimated. Among 
the excellent properties for which it is 
distinguished are these: it 'is not easily 
provoked'; it ' thinketh no evil '; it 
' beareth all things ' ; it ' endureth all 
things ' ; it ' hopeth all things.' It re- 
quires a life made up of such elements 
to endure the trials we have to meet 
without being thrown off our guard, and 
without being made miserable. The 
most of our callings in life have at times 
their trials. Be not surprised that you 
occasionally experience some of them. 
And by no means become discouraged. 
Try to bear your perplexities to-day, 
supported by the hope that it will be bet- 
ter to-morrow." 

From other letters I choose some para-

A DOSE OF THE RIGHT MEDICINE 

At the right time has prevented many a serious ail- 
ment, as well as years of suffering. By keeping a 
bottle of the old Swiss-German remedy Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizeron hand you will be prepared for most 
emergencies. It is prompt in action, certain in result 
and permanent in effect.

graphs in which h:.gave to me his ideal 
of the truly successful life and the means 
by which such a life may be attained: 
" In your thoughts in regard to any work 
you may have in view for the future, do 
not overlook your spiritual good, or your 
Christian culture. We should be very 
sorry to see you in a position, however 
remunerative and however honorable 
and pleasant, if it should be a position 
which in its character or tendency, or in 
the community in which it might be, 
would be unfavorable to your spiritual 
improvement or enjoyment. Always 
keep in mind the fact that your Christian 
interests are of infinitely more impor- 
tance than any of your other interests. 
And in all your reading and studying to 
improve yourself in your intellectual en- 
dowments, or in your manners, habits,, or 
tastes, study to obtain more of heavenly 
wisdom." 

" I hope you have given a just portion 
of your time to reading your Bible, in 
holy meditation and prayer. Try to cul- 
tivate a type of the highest Christian 
character. With such a character will 
go a holy and useful influence and a sa- 
cred joy. To attain to Christian culture 
we must study in the school of Christ, 
and under him as a divine teacher. To 
make a proficiency in divine culture, 
study is as necessary as it is in mental 
culture. It is to be greatly regretted 
that while so many are laboring to make 
advancement in their literary studies, so 
few Christians are laboring with the dili- 
- gence they should to advance in the di- 
vine life and in the divine knowledge. 
' Learn of me,' said our Savior. And 
what a book of study is his life as well 
as his gospel. Our Lord's life is the 
practical illustration of his precepts and 
principles. My dear daughter, never for- 
get your Christian profession, • but en- 
deavor to honor it." 

" A Christian should never be alto- 
gether without joy, for one of the divine 
commands is, ' Rejoice evermore.' And 
you will notice that this continual re- 
joicing is connected with continual pray- 
ing and the continued following of 'that 
which is good.' " 



The memory of such a life is a heri- 
tage whose value cannot be measured by 
earthly standards. A precious posses- 
sion it is indeed, yet of this it is true that 
" to whom much is given of him shall 
much be required." Dear friend, if your 
home is still blessed with a pious Chris- 
tian father, let me earnestly entreat you 
to seek often his advice, and to heed well 
his loving counsels, for all too soon the 
day will dawn wherein the loved voice 
shall be forever stilled, and the oppor- 
tunity to hear his prayers, and to go to 
him for help, shall be forever beyond 
your reach. May we to whom our fa- 
thers have given such memories never 
forget the worth of our estate in them, 
and endeavor constantly to carry into 
our every-day life the inspiration which 
they have given us to follow the great 
Master and Teacher who said, " I have 
given you an example that ye should 
do as I have done."

THE ANNUAL MEETING. 



The Annual Meeting for 1903 will be 
held at Bellefontaine, Ohio, commenc- 
ing on Tuesday morning, June 2. The 
Standing Committee will meet and or- 
ganize on Tuesday morning, May 28. 
The organization is effected by electing 
a Moderator, Reading Clerk and Writing 
Clerk. The voting is done by ballot. On 
Monday forenoon, June 1, the Annual 
Sunday School Meeting will be held in 
the Conference Tabernacle, as has been 
the usual custom. In the afternoon of 
the same day the great missionary meet- 
ing will be held. Both of these meetings 
are looked forward to with much inter- 
est. Every congregation in the Brother- 
hood should prepare to send a contribu- 
tion up to this mission meeting. If right- 
ly managed the collection on this occa- 
sion will amount to several thousand dol- 
lars. Let the collection, in the local 
churches be taken up not later than May 
24. This is none too soon to think about 
this collection. Lay your plans and be 
ready for it.

Who have very little faith in so-called "patent" medicines; to use a homelier expression, "they have no use for 
them." This is not surprising, when we consider how many have been disappointed in their use. This is no 
good reason, however, for rejecting all medicines. There are a few remedies in existence that have stood the 
test of time and among them is Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. It has been a blessing in thousands of happy 
homes.

'TIS THE LAST ROSE OF SUMMER. 



BY THOMAS MOORE. 

Thomas Moore was born at Dublin in 1779- 
He went to Trinity College. He wrote many sa- 
tirical papers and lampoons against the Regent 
which were afterwards collected in the " Twopenny 
Post Bag." His other prose writings consist chief- 
ly of biographies, among which is one of Byron, 
whose friend Moore was. But what Moore will 
be best remembered and loved for are his Irish 
melodies and national songs, and especially for 
" Lalla Rookh." He died in 181 7. — Chicago Tri- 
bune. 

'Tis the last rose of summer 

Left blooming alone; 

'All her lovely companions 

Are faded and gone; 

No flower of her kindred, 

No rosebud is nigh, 

To reflect back her blushes, 

Or give sigh for sigh. 



THE LAST ROSE. 

I'll not leave thee, thou lone one! 
To pine on the stem; 
Since the lovely are sleeping, 
Go, sleep thou with them. 
Thus kindly I scatter 
Thy leaves o'er the bed, 
Where thy mates "of the garden 
LJi'e s'ce'ntress- ain'd dea'd. 



So soon may I follow, 
When friendships decay, 
And from love's shining circle 
The gems drop away! 
When true hearts lie withered, 
And fond ones are flown, 
O, who would inhabit 
This bleak world alone?

A BIT OF SOUTHERN HISTORY. 




BY JAMES M. NEFF. 

About twenty-four years ago a teach- 
er came across the mountains of North 
Carolina and organized a writing school 
in Washington County, Tenn. Among 
his pupils was a young brother who had 
been deprived of an education on account 
of the death of his parents when he was 
a child. He was energetic and ambi- 
tious, and so industriously improved the 
opportunities offered by this term of 
school and so pleased his teacher that 
he induced him to join him in his tour of 
the country and assist him in the organ- 
ization of schools in the various 'locali- 
ties he wished to visit. Thus they trav- 
eled together through the mountainous 
region of western North Carolina until 
they reached Polk County, beyond the 
mountains. Here the teacher left his 
partner, the young brother, for a tem- 
porary visit among friends in an adjoin- 
ing county. 

Never disposed to be idle, the brother 
soon found employment and formed at- 
tachments that kept him there much 
longer than he had at first anticipated. 
And he was one of those young men who 
was not ashamed of what he believed, 
and everywhere he went he carried his 
Testament with him and at many a fire- 
side did he turn the conversation upon 
the subject of religion, tell his friends 
what he believed, and produce his little 
Book to show them why. At that time 
there were very few people in all that 
country that had ever heard of the Breth- 
ren church, and many listened to the ar- 
guments of this young brother with pro- 
fouiTcl a'stbnishment. Bui time Went on,

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



17 



and time often works great changes, you 
know. This young man plowed in the 
field, digged in the gold mine, wielded 
the ax and hoe to make an honest living, 
but all the while he kept using his influ- 
ence and his little Book in favor of the 
cause of truth and right. And it was not 
long till some began to say, " Write for 
some of your preachers to come into this 
country. We want to hear more of this 
new Gospel which you bring." So the 
brother wrote back to Tennessee to some 
of the Brethren he knew and told them 
there was a call for preaching, and urged 
them to come. But the distance was 
long and the mountains were high, and 
mission funds there were none. More- 
over the number of moonshine distiller- 
ies in Polk County and the condition of 
society there in general made the Breth- 
ren feel that religious work there might 
be neither pleasant nor profitable; and 
so the call went unheeded. 

But this was not to be the last of it. 
The young brother wrote again and 
again and urged the preachers to come. 
In the meantime he kept constantly at 
it, doing what he could; and ere long he 
had news to write the brethren in Ten- 
nessee such as gave an urgency to his 
call that they could not but respond to. 
Seven persons, all heads of families, hajd 
expressed their desire to unite with the 
church and awaited Christian baptism. 
When this news was received Bro. F. W. 
Dove and Bro. A. J. Vines got into their 
saddles and rode across the mountains 
130 miles, held a number of meetings, 
baptized the seven applicants and or- 
ganized a church of eight members, — 
the Lord's boy and the seven converts 
that the Lord had given him. At this 
organization that boy was called to the 
ministry, the brethren held their last 
meeting, made a standing appointment 
for him, said good-bye and left him and 
his seven followers alone with the Lord 
in the wilderness. This was the begin- 
ning of the Mill Creek church, of Polk 
County, North Carolina, and from that 
time till this the Lord has been working 
out his purposes through his people in 



that part of North Carolina, and to-day 
the Mill Creek church has a membership 
of about 140, the Green River Cove. con- 
gregation has been organized through 
its influence and little clumps of mem- 
bers are scattered here and there through- 
out several counties, each one of which, 
with necessary help, should become the 
nucleus of a separate congregation. 

MORAL. — This story suggests at least 
two important lessons: (1) The Lord 
can accomplish great things through the 
boy who will carry his Bible and use it. 
(2) North Carolina presents a mission 
field that it is worth while to work.

AIR FROM LIMESTONE CAVES. 



" Victims of pulmonary complaints 
have heretofore been compelled to make 
inconvenient journeys to the higher alti- 
tudes in search of the pure rarefied air 
which is known to be so beneficial to 
them, but this is no longer necessary," 
says The Scientific American. 

" It has been discovered that the air 
from limestone caves has all the charac- 
teristics of that of the mountains. This 
discovery has just been made use of in 
the location of a sanatorium near one 
of these caves, and the air for the insti- 
tution is supplied from the underground 
caverns. This establishment is at Luray, 
Va., and the system of ventilation is ar- 
ranged so that each room gets its own 
supply direct from the cave. The air 
of these caverns is of a very uniform tem- 
perature and remarkably pure and free 
from all germs and dust particles. In 
the warmest weather the doors and win- 
dows of this institution are kept closed, 
and a comfortable temperature of 75 de- 
grees is maintained in spite of one of 90 
degrees or more encountered outside."

THE ROUND TOWER OF COPEN- 
HAGEN. 



BY A W. VANIMAN. 



The capital of Denmark is a city of 
about three hundred thousand inhabit- 



rirtriMHfe^ftg 




THE ROUND TOWER. 

ants. It has many interesting places one 
can visit. Not the least among these is 
what is called " Runde Taarn," The 
Round Tower. The writer has seen 



many winding stairs, but this is different 
from anything we have ever seen before. 
It is a round structure one hundred and 
eleven feet high, and forty-five feet in 
diameter. The outside wall is nearly 
four feet thick. In the center is a round 
column about fifteen feet in diameter. 
This is probably not entirely 
solid. Between the outer 
wall and the center column 
is a space of about thirteen 
feet. This space is covered 
with a solid brick pavement 
built on a gradual incline 
winding about seven times 
around the tower. The dis- 
tance one walks is about sev- 
en hundred feet. 

The Czar of Russia, Peter 
the Great, visited Copenha- 
gen with his wife in 1716. He 
rode up to the top of the 
winding walk on horseback, 
while his wife rode in a four- 
horse vehicle. The slant is 
so gradual and the track so 
wide that such a feat is not at 
all impossible. A story is 
told in connection with this 
visit as follows: When stand- 
ing on the platform at the 
top of the building, Peter the 
Great said to the Danish 
king: " Such is the power I 
hold over my subjects that 
any of them will at once pre- 
cipitate himself from this 
place at my command." To 
which the Danish king re- 
plied: " I willingly believe 
your majesty, but I can safe- 
ly lay my head in the lap of 
any of my subjects. Can 
you say you would be able 
to do the same?" The Dan- 
ish king had a high concep- 
tion of what was the true 
way to govern a people. 
The tower was built by Christian the 
Fourth of Denmark. It has on it the 
date 1642, when America was a howl- 
ing wilderness with only a few small

WHEN YOU ARE CLEAN 

You are always happiest. After a bath life seems 
worth living. Think of the pleasure of being clean 
through and through. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer 
will remove every taint of impurity from the blood 
and restore the vital organs to healthful activity.

settlements along the Atlantic, over one 
hundred and thirty years before the 
American Revolution. It was built orig- 
inally for an astronomical observatory. 
Around the outside of the platform on 
the top is a wrought-iron fence about 
three feet high, placed there by Christian 
IV. It contains his monogram and the 
latin motto R. F. P., " Regnum Firmat 
Pietas," which means, " Piety strength- 
ens the kingdom," but it was a saying 
among the people that the initials stood 
in Danish for " Reget Fattas Penge " — 
the kingdom is in need of money. 

Inside of the fence referred to there 
has in later years been built a very high 
iron fence so made that it would be ex- 
ceedingly difficult for a person to climb 
over. This was placed there because a 
number of persons had committed sui- 
cide by throwing themselves over the 
other fence to the ground below. I have 
never seen a place better adapted for 
that purpose, as there is nothing what- 
ever to block one's fall, the walls being 
smooth and perpendicular. 

Connected with the tower is Trinity 
church (Trinitas Kirke), built by Chris- 
tian IV, from 1637-57. In 1728, about 
the time our Brethren were emigrating 
from Germany to America, the roof and 
upper part of the church were burnt, to- 
gether with a valuable library of the 
university and a number of instruments, 
among which was the remarkable celes- 
tial globe of Tycho Brahe. This globe 
was six feet in diameter, made of wood 
coated with brass plates, on which the 
positions of one hundred fixed stars were 
marked. 

Under the floor of the church is a place 
where many persons are buried and the 
caskets can be seen in the basement. 
Some contain the remains of noted per- 
sons in Danish history.

C. E. ARNOLD. 



BY EDWARD FRANTZ. 

There are some events to which it is 
particularly hard to be reconciled. It 
cannot be, it seems to us, that they are 
stern realities; we must have been dream- 
ing. Such was the death of Eld. C. E. 
Arnold, President of McPherson College. 
Hale and hearty as he was, we never 
thought of losing him so soon. Indeed 
we should have guessed that he would be 
the last of our company to go. He 
seemed to be just entering upon a great 
career. 

Charles Edward Arnold was born May 
13, 1866, in Mineral County, West Vir- 
ginia, being the eldest son of Eld. D. B. 
Arnold, who still resides at the above- 
named place and is well known through- 
out the Brotherhood. The first seven- 
teen years of his life were spent on the 
farm. He took eager advantage of the 
school opportunities offered, which were 
limited to four or five months each win- 
ter. His earliest recollected ambition 
was to be a teacher. While working on 
the farm his mind was largely occupied 
with his studies. Often when following 
the plow he would be solving a mathe- 
matical problem or rehearsing a history 
outline in preparation for an examina- 
tion. Rainy days and the noon " rest " 
were spent in the same way. His father 
and his uncle, Eld. Geo. S. Arnold, Coun- 
ty Superintendent of Mineral County, 
encouraged his educational ambitions. 
At seventeen he taught district school, 
having obtained a first grade certificate. 
When the trustees solicited him for re- 
employment and he told them he must 
go to school himself, they replied that 
they did not see why one who had a first 
grade certificate needed anything further. 

In 1885 he went to Bridgewater Col- 
lege, Virginia. Here he continued five 
years, during three of these serving as 
teacher of the Commercial Department. 
In the first year at Bridgewater he united 
with the church. The summer of 1890 
was spent at the Ohio Normal University

Was the conclusion the doctors arrived at. They had done their best and failed." Mr. Frank Loskot of 943 
Fairfield avenue, Chicago, Ills., in a letter to Dr. Peter Fahrney, relates the circumstances of his mother's 
sickness, her teirible sufferings, the failure of high-priced scientific medical treatment and her complete res- 
toration to health by the use of Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. It is, however, not an unusual case. Thousands 
of similar instances can be cited where the result has been the same.

and a previous summer at the Kentucky 
University. Mention is made below of 
his later studies. From 1891 to 1893 he 
was teacher of mathematics in the Bote- 
tourt Normal at Daleville, Va., and also 
secretary of the school. In 1893 he came 
to McPherson as professor of mathemat- 
ics. Three years later he was elected 
president of the college, which position 
he filled to the time of his death. 

In September, 1891, he was married to 
Ella Beahm, a sister of Bro. I. N. H. 
Beahm, with whom he lived happily and 
who survives him. To them were born 
two children, a daughter, Ruth, now ten 
years old, and a little son, Russell, whose 
body was laid away just eight weeks be- 
fore that of his father, being less than 
a year old. 

In 1894 Bro. Arnold was elected to the 
ministry. He was shortly afterward ad- 
vanced to the second degree, and in 1898 
was ordained to the eldership. 

To the Brotherhood at large Bro. Ar- 
nold was probably best known as an oc- 
casional writer of short, pithy articles in 
the Messenger. These articles were al- 
ways models of clear thinking and force- 
ful expression and were widely appre- 
ciated. More of this work would have 
done good service, but he was too busy 
a man. 

His interest in the Sunday-school work 
is also well known. He believed strong- 
ly in its great possibilities and gave un- 
sparingly of his time and energy to this 
work. He was Sunday School Secretary 
for Southwestern Kansas ever since the 
establishment of that office. For the 
last year of his life he was a member of 
the General Sunday School Advisory 
Committee. He assisted in the prepara- 
tion of matter for the Brethren quarter- 
lies and expected as soon as he could 
find the time, to prepare a graded sys- 
tem of Scripture memory work for use 
in Sunday schools. Several years ago 
he was elected editor of Sunday-school 
literature by the Brethren Publishing 
House. This position he had at one time 
decided to accept, but upon the earnest 
solicitation of many friends he was in- 



duced to reconsider and remain in the 
educational work. That he was an ag- 
gressive Sunday-school worker was rec- 
ognized outside of our own fraternity, 
as he had served for some years as a 
member of the executive committee of 
the Kansas State Sunday School Associa- 
tion. 

If the worth of sermons be measured 
by the amount of solid thought in them, 
then Bro. Arnold must be accounted a 
preacher of more than ordinary ability. 
Of the two main elements of preaching, 
instruction and exhortation, his was al- 
most wholly the former. He was no* 
an orator, as that term is commonly used, 
though there were times when he would 
speak with more than usual fervor. An 
illustration of this was his address in 
the educational meeting at the Lincoln 
Conference. He usually spoke in a con- 
versational tone. He carried the meth- 
ods of the class room into the pulpit. 
His appeal was mainly to the intellect. 
Possessed of an analytic mind, his treat- 
ment of a subject was so exhaustive 
there seemed to be nothing else to say. 
He addressed himself principally to the 
students, and those who had been long- 
est in school were his most appreciative 
listeners. The last sermon he ever 
preached was a most valuable discussion 
of a problem intensely practical for the 
Christian student, the relation between 
reason and faith. It is a pity that it has 
not been preserved for a wider hearing. 

Owing partly to his scarcity of years 
and partly to his pre-occupation with 
other duties, his experience in the work 
of the eldership was not extensive, but 
he was already recognized as one whose 
judgment could be trusted. A happy 
combination of quick perception and 
careful deliberation made him an excel- 
lent counselor. He was just the sort of 
man to see a way out of a tangled situa- 
tion, and more than one knotty problem 
in church as well as school affairs owes 
its solution to a suggestion from him. 

It was in the educational work that 
Bro. Arnold rendered his greatest serv- 
ice to the church. It was in the exten-

NOT REALLY SICK 

But ailing, losing flesh, dispirited, melancholy! How 
many are there not in just that condition! A word of 
encouragement, a little timely advice to commence 
treatment with a reliable remedy such as Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer will quickly change the aspect.

sion of education that he saw a future 
for the Brethren church, and to this work 
he gave his best thought and effort. As 
he lay suffering and looking through the 
already half-open door into eternity he 
remarked one day, " I hope the day is not 
far distant when our Brethren with 
means will regard it as much of a mis- 
sionary duty to endow colleges as to send 
missionaries to the heathen." By this 
remark he intended no disparagement of 
the foreign mission work, for he was an 
ardent supporter of this also. 

When he was chosen President of Mc- 
Pherson College the outlook for the 
school was everything but promising. A 
faculty on the point of dissolution, a 
small attendance, a half-finished college 
building, a mortgage threatening speedy 
foreclosure — these were the inducements 
to the acceptance of this position. He 
would have been the last person to claim 
for himself the whole credit for the 
changed situation, but it is only due him 
to say that it was his inspiring leader- 
ship, his sublime faith in the midst of the 
most discouraging circumstances, which, 
far more than was then realized, caused 
a group of brethren to " hang together " 
and stay by the work until these difficul- 
ties were surmounted. 

In matters of discipline he was sig- 
nally successful. Patience, gentleness, 
firmness, tact, were qualities which fitted 
him admirably for this phase of his du- 
ties. But it is what he was in the class 
room that will cause his name to be long- 
est remembered by scores and hundreds 
of s,tudents. His desk was surrounded 
by that atmosphere of intellectual candor 
combined with deep spirituality which is 
as valuable as it is rare. How many young 
men and young women under his judi- 
cious guidance have been safely helped 
over the slippery places in the student's 
path, and lifted onward and upward into 
the higher walks of pure and soul-satis- 
fying thought and life, cannot be told 
now. 

Two or three elements of Bro. Arnold's 
character Reserve: special mention. What 
is said here is said, not because it Will 



make him any better than he was, but 
because the truth warrants it and with 
the hope that the reader may be inspired 
thereby to build a character like his. 
One of these conspicuous qualities was 
his tireless industry. Enough has been 
said already to show that his capacity 
for hard work and disposition to do it 
were alike remarkable. In addition to 
what has been mentioned and the count- 
less unnamable duties that come to one 
in his position, he was pursuing a course 
of advanced studies under the direction 
of the Illinois Wesleyan University, in 
Psychology, Ethics and Christian The- 
ism. In this work he had completed ex- 
aminations upon them from two to three 
and one-half hours in length. In these ex- 
aminations alone he had written five hun- 
dred pages of legal cap paper. The cul- 
ture derived from this work and the con- 
sciousness of better preparation for his 
teaching, as well as for the life to come, 
were to him a source of constant delight, 
much more than repaying for all the toil 
and sacrifice involved. All this was sim- 
ply a part of his religion. Believing as 
he did that life is to be regarded as a 
great school of preparation for higher 
usefulness in the world beyond, he held 
that not a moment must pass without 
yielding something of eternal value. 

His unwavering faith is worthy of more 
than passing notice. This faith was not 
that superficial kind which exalts human 
wisdom and informs God how affairs • 
ought to be managed. It was the kind 
which takes in a wide range of vision and 
persists in believing in the wisdom and 
goodness of God even when the imme- 
diate outlook would seem to suggest the 
contrary. In a letter from the hospital 
he says, " Of course I have canvassed 
the whole range of possibilities in my 
case, but I am not despondent. I am 
trying to look on the bright side. I 
am trying to see some brightness on all 
sides." There you have the picture of 
the man exactly. He could see "bright- 
ness on all sides." This is not to im- 
ply, that he was blind to the reality of 
evil.. His optimism was not the kind 
which settles down into an easy con-

Of Chicago, Mr. Gustaf Wiklund, says: "During the eleven years that I have been engaged on the public 
press in this country I have had a vast opportunity of noticing the many advertisements of so-called "patent 
medicines" and I must freely s?y, that I had no faith in them. It was therefore with much skepticism that I 
purchased about a year ago, at the solicitation of my wife, two bottles of Dr. Peter's Blood Vitstfizer. I am 
nappy to state that I have never regretted it, on the contrary the remedy has established itself as our family 
medicine and is now used by us all, young and old."

tentment with existing conditions, right 
or wrong. It was of the Caleb-like varie- 
ty which sees the " giants," but seeing al- 
so that " we are well able to overcome 
them," fastens the eyes rather upon the 
" grapes." 

It is a corollary of this that he was 
not disturbed by the present tendency 
to examine anew the foundations of 
Christian belief. He welcomed the 
freest inquiry, confident that truth can- 
not suffer by investigation. He was not 
afraid that righteousness would perish 
from the earth, even if we should dis- 
cover something we had not known be- 
fore. The modern questioning of cher- 
ished beliefs was to him simply a sign 
that Christianity is preparing for a 
mighty advance. He believed intensely 
that truth and right are bound to tri- 
umph, and this confidence nerved him 
for the battle. 

Steadiness seems to me the best word 
for what the writer must regard as the 
overshadowing element in Bro. Arnold's 
personality. Of course, in view of what 
has just been said, the explanation of 
this is not far to seek; but this quality 
was so outstanding as to call for sepa- 
rate mention. You never saw him in a 
flurry of excitement. Conscious that he 
was trying to do his best and that God 
would take care of the rest, he moved 
steadily on through each day's duties 
and trials with well-nigh perfect compo- 
sure. Some men travel by the mountain 
tops to-day and through deep, dark tun- 
nels to-morrow, but Bro. Arnold just 
kept to the plain, level road. Some peo- 
ple's religion is crowded into occasional 
ecstatic experiences; his was something 
to permeate and dignify the most com- 
mon of every-day duties. 

And so it was that those closing weeks 
of patient suffering and waiting for the 
approaching transition were to him so 
natural, to us so wonderful. He talked 
of the coming change for himself, of the 
future for those who would remain here, 
as calmly as he ever talked of anything. 
He kept working as long as it was phy- 
sically possible. Not many days before 



his death he dictated answers to his cor- 
respondence. Not long before this he 
had written some ten foolscap pages of 
business advice for the guidance of his 
family. We looked on and marveled. 
But how could it have been otherwise. 
It was the way he had lived. As in life, 
so in death, he was just doing the next 
thing that needed to be done, and this 
came as naturally as the rest. It was a 
picture truly sublime. And thus he 
worked and waited on until the dread 
cancer had eaten away his life. An hour 
and a half before the close of the last 
day of last May, with peace upon his lips 
and peace in his soul, he fell asleep. 
McPherson, Kans.

THE VALUE OF A VISIT TO THE 
BIBLE LANDS. 



BY E. B. HOFF. 

The real value of a visit to the country 
in which the characters of the Bible 
lived, and in which the Book itself was 
written, depends very largely on the 
motive which prompts the visit. Many 
take this trip out of curiosity; others out 
of mere sentiment; still others go to get 
a better grasp upon the truths of God's 
Word. For the class last mentioned 
there is a great reward. Every page of 
the Bible is illustrated by historical inci- 
dent, parable or miracle; yes, every page 
is aglow with truth so plainly illustrated 
that one can hardly help but love it. 
Especially is this so when it is studied 
in the environment in which it was writ- 
ten, where many of the conditions are 
still as they were in the remote ages of 
history. 

The stately camel caravans still march 
through the country from end to end as 
they did in the days of Abraham. The 
Ishmaelites lead their caravans through 
the great pass by Dothan to Egypt, as 
they did when they took the boy Joseph 
with them. 

The farmer uses the rude one-handled 
plow, made of the crooked oaks of 
Bashan, and pointed with a small iron

IT IS A PUZZLE 

To doctors and laity alike. Attempts have been made 
time and again at explaining wherein the peculiar ef- 
ficacy of Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer in the treat- 
ment of blood and constitutional diseases really lies, 
but all that can be said is: "It does the work."

share. The small oxen and cows draw 
the plow with the simplest form of yoke, 
reminding one of the days of Job and 
Elisha. The law of unequal yoking is 
violated when the attempt is made to 
draw the plow with the ox and the ass 
or the ox and the camel. The man who 
handles the sickle still allows the gleaner 
to take the corners. The ancient land- 
marks are seen on every hand and are 
practically the only line fences of the 
country. As the sower sows, some 
grains still fall upon the hard footpath 
that winds around through the fields. 
The threshing floor, like Araunah's, is 
a high, flat place where the wind can

for the guests as did Sarah for the angels 
whom Abraham entertained. The wom-

springs in water-jars upon their heads, 
carrying in the hand a rope and leathern 
bucket with which to draw the water. 
The shepherd, carrying his staff in his

with the flock. The man who plants a

drive away the chaff when once the un- 
muzzled ox has treaded out the grain or 
has lazily drawn the rude, toothed sledge 
about on it until it is loosened from the 
chaff. The wooden winnowing fork and 
pan (shovel) are carefully manipulated so 
as to separate the wheat and barley from 
the straw and chaff. As in the days of 
Solomon barley and straw are the food 
for the horses, donkeys and camels. As 
you pass through the narrow-walled 
streets of the village or town you hear 
the sound of the grinding, and as you 
stare in at the open door you see two 
women sitting on the floor grinding on 
the mill. The faithful housewife hurried- 



hedge or builds 
a wall about it 
and rears a 
watch-tower in 
it. 

Thus one 
might go out in- 
to the various 
details of life 
and be continu- 
ally reminded 
that the habits 
are still the 
same as they 
were in Bible 
times. It almost 
seems as though 
the Divine Prov- 
idence had kept 
this ancient land intact so that Bible 
truth would lose none of its vividness 
in these ages of scriptural rationalisms 
and criticisms. 

Many of the ancient customs are now 
gradually giving way to the western hab- 
its of life, so that some have advanced 
grave doubts as to whether the land 
would continue to witness for the Truth. 
We must, however, remember that the 
topography of the country is largely the 
same as it has been in the ages past. It 
still retains its general demeanor; its 
mounts and mountains, hills and valleys 
and plains, fountains, rivers and seas; 
its seasons and grains and trees; its ani-

mals and birds and many other things 
remain to tell the story. 

And then, too, the excavations that are 
being made a*e speaking loudly and 
that, too, with unmistakable accent. The 
stones that have been buried there many 
centuries are beginning to cry out in 
witness of the truth, Jerusalem, Bethle- 
hem, Hebron, Dan, Jericho, Bethel, Sa- 
maria, Shechem, Lachish and many, many 
other cities unite to say, "Here am I; 
walk on my streets, examine my walls 
and buildings and see the altars upon 
which my people offered sacrifice and the 
idols which they too often worshiped." 
The tablets and monuments that are be- 
ing found all over the Orient, from the 
Tigris of Assyria to the Nile of Egypt, 
are proclaiming a wonderful corrobora- 
tion with the Bible narrative. 

It certainly is a rare privilege to trav- 
erse these sacred lands from end to end 
with an open Bible in the hand, guided 
by the Holy Spirit in the footprints of the 
loving Master under the fostering care 
of the unchangeable Father in heaven.

THE MISSION OF THE AVERAGE 
MAN. 



BY WILBUR STOVER. 

The bulk of the people are known as 
the common people, and among these 
our people are to be found. From the 
bulk the average is made up. What is 
the mission of the average man? A 
small per cent can be foreign mission- 
aries or preachers at home, or college 
professors, or editors, or bookmakers; 
but all those who cannot, what is their 
mission? What ought they reasonably 
to aspire to, without which not be satis- 
fied? 

Uncle Dan once told me that the man 
who makes two blades of grass grow 
where one grew before, he is a bene- 
factor. But the average man cannot do 
that. Uncle Dan once said that it takes 
more genius to invest money than to 



make money. The average man perhaps 
doesn't see it in the same light. 

Speaking concerning matters spiritual, 
I take it that the average man ought 
to enjoy continual growth. As the corn 
in the fields, and the calves in the pas- 
ture, and the chickens in the barnyard, 
grow physically, so he, a man after God's 
own heart, a Christian man, a man born 
from above, ought to grow spiritually. 
Last year's faith was large enough, — 
for last year; but not large enough for 
this year. Conditions have changed 
since last year. Experience has been 
added since last year. Experience is the: 
Christian farmer's fertilizer. He ought 
to be able to love more this year than 
he did last year, because he is a creature 
of growth. So also is love in him. If 
he does not grow, he is below the aver- 
age, for even an average calf in the pas- 
ture grows. And if he grows, and keeps 
on growing from year to year, with no 
season of backsliding or standing still, 
he does his part well. 

An average man ought to be better 
than his neighbors. Count them as nine 
in number, for example, so that he and 
they make ten. The sum of the mis- 
takes of nine ought to save the one a 
deal of unpleasant experience. Why 
should he walk into the same pitfall that 
one of his nine neighbors got into? He 
won't, unless he is below the average. 
He ought not to think of himself as be- 
ing as good as his neighbors. He ought 
to be just a bit better. The man is de- 
ceiving himself who apologizes by say- 
ing he is as good as the others. It is 
the same thing to say one is no worse 
than the others. It is a poor hope to 
indulge in, that one measures his life by 
thinking himself no worse than others. 
I asked a Hindoo once if Mohun were 
better than Gohun. " Better," said he, 
" none is better. Gohun is worse than 
Mohun." One is headed the wrong way 
if he says he is no worse than another. 

An average man ought to be better 
than his fathers. Hindoos boast of a 
great past. And we give them credit for 
it, for there is nothing for them to look 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



3i 



forward to. It is all in the past, and the 
record is lost! I feel sorry for a man 
when he laments the death of a good 
worker, saying, " There'll never be an- 
other James Quinter. There'll never be 
another Robert Miller. There'll never 
be another John Cline, D. P. Saylor, or 
Christopher Saur!" I have no sympa- 
thy for any such talk. All honor to those 
who have done well before us, but the 
church has a greater future than its past. 
If not, it is to be pitied. I believe in 
the future. We cannot tell now who will 
be our future leaders. They may be in 
our midst. Their time is not yet come. 
But the fields are full of them, men great, 
noble, true and brave, ready to do and 
to dare for the Lord and his church! And 
they'll be ready when their time comes. 
And their work will be greater than any- 
thing we have yet seen. And their lives 
will be more near the ideal than any 
now living! 

I do not intentionally shut my eyes 
to evil, but it seems to me things are 
getting better. We often know the good 
of the past and the evil of the present, 
and therefore get despondent. I think 
a man is making a comment on his own 
life, when he says his father was by far 
his superior. It may be the truth, but 
it is sad if it is. A man, an average man, 
ought to be better than his father. He 
inherits all the inheritance of his father, 
besides his father's experience. Spiritual 
inheritance is a great thing. If he is 
not better, he is therefore not an equal. 
If he is not equal, he is weaker, worse, 
less happy, more miserable, headed the 
wrong way! And then he falls below the 
average. An average man ought to be a 
bit better than his father was. Not that 
he thinks so, but that he is so. 

He ought to have a clearer, fuller, more 
comprehensive faith. He ought to be as 
pure in heart, as gentle, as kind and con- 
siderate, and eliminate the weak points of 
the life of his father. He must not talk 
of doing his share, or giving his share. 
They fall below the average who do that. 

The. mission of the average man, then, 
as I make it out, — ?and I do not know how 



else to figure it, — is to keep growing, live 
up to opportunity, walk in all the light 
that shines on his path. He must be 
just a bit better than the general run, 
he must be better than his neighbor, and 
never satisfied to be "just as good." He 
must aspire to exceed the purity, charity 
and faithfulness of his fathers. He must 
do more for the Lord than they did. He 
must be more alert to opportunities. He 
will have more religious books and pa- 
pers in his house. He ought to have a 
bigger heart, a wiser head, a fuller hand. 
All honor to the average man, who never 
hesitates, and who becomes a leader of 
his community without his knowing it, 
the community unconsciously walking in 
his footsteps.

COON RIVER CHURCH, IOWA. 



BY J. D. HAUGHTELIN. 

What is now known as the Coon River 
church, Iowa, was first organized as part 
of the Indian Creek church, in June, 1862, 
with eight members living near Panora. 
These members were, Jacob Walter and 
Catherine (his wife), John W. Diehl, 
Eliza Haughtelin, her daughter Sallie A. 
Chamberlin, her two sons, A. H. and J. 
D. Haughtelin, and Lydia Brumbaugh. 
These have all been removed by death, 
except Sister, Chamberlin (now Myers), 
J. W. Diehl and J. D. Haughtelin. 

Their first love feast was held at the 
home of friend (afterward brother) Dan- 
iel Brumbaugh, two miles south of Pa- 
nora, where J. W. Diehl was chosen dea- 
con and J. D. Haughtelin teacher. At 
the close of this feast Samuel Brum- 
baugh was baptized. Regular appoint- 
ments were left by Eld. Flory, of Indian 
Creek, and filled by the above-named 
brethren, chosen to office for the work. 
In June, 1863, another feast was held at 
the same place, where J. D. Haughtelin 
was advanced to second degree. The 
next month, Eld. Flory and J. D. Haugh- 
telin, accompanied by, two laymembers, 
drove across the county about sixty

miles west of Panora, near Harlan, in 
Shelby County, where they found three 
members, baptized three more and held 
a love feast, the first meeting of the kind 
in this part of Iowa, and the last on earth 
for Bro. Flory, who died the next month. 
In June, 1865, the Indian Creek terri- 
tory (scattered over about half a dozen 
counties) was by mutual consent divided 
— all west of the Des Moines River being 
known as " Coon River," with no known 
western boundary. Later on, Panther 
Creek was taken off the east and Botany 
(now Harlan church) off the west, which 
brought Coon River down to its present

limits — about thirty miles east and west 
and fifty north and south. 

In June, 1866, J. W. Diehl (after serv- 
ing faithfully as a deacon for four years) 
was elected to the ministry, and in Sep- 
tember, 1868, was advanced to the second 
degree of the ministry, and in November, 
1886, he and J. D. Haughtelin were or- 
dained to the eldership where they still 
labor together. 

Official List. 

Elders. — John Fitz came from Illinois 
in November, 1874; went back to Illinois 
a few years later. He was our first resi- 
dent elder. Died in 1900. S. Longa- 
necker came from Pennsylvania in April, 
1872; was ordained after Eld. Fitz left; 
died in September, 1882. After Eld. 



Longanecker's death J. W. Diehl and J. 
D. Haughtelin were ordained as above 
stated. When we had no resident elder, 
the church was under the care of G. R. 
Baker, C. Long and R. Badger in the or- 
der named. Eld. J. D. Myers came to 
Bagley in September, 1900, and moved 
to Pennsylvania in the spring of 1902. 
Joseph L. Myers came from Illinois in 
the spring of 1883; moved to Harlan 
church in March, 1897. He was ordained 
in 1898, and in March, 1899, went to Can- 
do, N. Dak., where he improved a home- 
stead and returned to Coon River church 
in October, 1901. Died Dec. 24, 1901. 

Ministers. — Jacob 
Hamilton, a teacher, 
came in March, 1867; 
was advanced a few 
years later; moved to 
Kansas in the autumn 
of 1884, where he still 
lives. J. C. Miller 
came in April, 1870; 
moved to Dallas 
County (Panther 
church) in July same 
year and back to Linn 
County a few years 
later, where he died a 
few years ago. About 
1870 A. Brower came 
from Indiana; was 
elected deacon soon 
after and in a few years teacher, and in 
due time advanced, where he still labors. 
About 1872, M. Deardorff was baptized; 
a year later was elected deacon; one 
year after that preacher, and advanced 
at the same time with A. Brower, and 
like him still labors in that capacity. 
John Fitz, a deacon, came here in the 
spring of 1873; was elected teacher in 
June, 1892; advanced in 1898, died in July, 
1899. Daniel Shirk was elected at Maple 
River Junction (about forty miles north- 
west of Panora); moved away a few 
years later. Bro. Deeter, a minister, 
moved in the same vicinity about that 
time and away in a year. M. Herman, 
a minister, move.d to Adair <about forty- 
miles so\ithVeVt of Pa'rib'ra) in March,

1882, where he still lives, though on ac- 
count of peculiar environments he does 
but little preaching. J. B. Diehl moved 
to Carroll County (about thirty miles 
northwest of Panora) in October, 1886, 
where he labored for some years, but on 
account of age and infirmity does but lit- 
tle preaching lately. Irving Haughtelin, 
elected in April, 1898, advanced in June, 
1902. Emery Fiscel was elected in Au- 
gust, 1900. Ellis Caslow was elected in 
June, 1902. L. D. Bosserman moved 
from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Bagley (fif- 
teen miles northwest of Panora) in 
March, 1901, where he conducts the work 
at that place. 

The five years after our organization 
we held our love feasts at the home of 
our warm-hearted old friend, Daniel 
Brumbaugh, who still extended the invi- 
tation and afterward became a brother; 
but for the members living mostly north 
of Panora the feasts were held at the 
home of Bro. B. E. Plaine until we built 
our house in 1873, except one time at the 
home of Bro. John Swisher, near Dale, 
eight miles south of Panora. 

Summary (at present time) : Two eld- 
ers; six ministers (second degree) two of 
them superannuated; two teachers (first 
degree); eleven deacons, three of them 
superannuated; about two hundred mem- 
bers; meeting places, seven. 

Coon River, like most pioneer church- 
es, kept no official records for years, and 
then rather meagre, so the dates given 
are not presumed to be absolutely cor- 
rect in all cases, but as nearly so as is 
possible to secure under the circum- 
stances.

ELD. SAMUEL ZIGLER. 



BY DANIEL HAYS. 



Eld. Samuel Zigler was born Oct. 11, 
1816. His father was John Zigler, and 
his mother, Elizabeth, was the only sis- 
ter of Eld. John KLline. His parents 
lived awhile near the<Kline^omestead. 
then moved to the north bVnk of the 



Shenandoah river where Timberville, 
Va., now stands. They had ' thirteen 
children, Samuel being their fourth son. 
He went to the common schools of that 
day, and his education was mostly in 
German. In 1841, he was married to 
Annie Miller, the tenth in a family of 
eighteen children. After marriage he 
lived for a time on his father's farm near 
Timberville, then moved to the home 
of his wife's parents near Greenmount, 
Va., then removed to the place which 
he made his home, a few miles east of 
Linville Creek meetinghouse. 

He united with the church in 1844; and 
in 1856 he was elected to the office of 
deacon. In 1858 he was elected to the 
ministry, and advanced to the second 
degree sometime during the Civil War. 
In 1865, after the death of Eld. John 
Kline, Bro. Zigler was ordained as the 
elder of Linville Creek church.. This was 
done by the adjoining elders, Jacob Wine 
of Flat Rock church and John Wine, 
of Beaver Creek, officiating. 

Eld. Zigler never preached much; but 
when it came to overseeing the church, 
he was as good as any. He carried the 
deacon office with him through the min- 
istry and into the eldership — which goes 
to show that a man need not be an able 
speaker in order to become an efficient 
elder. He visited much from house to 
house, and in the mission field in West 
Virginia he often went with the brethren 
on the yearly visit, where his fatherly 
counsel was much appreciated. When 
the time came by reason of age that he 
could no longer visit the members in this 
way, he was still in their hearts in loving 
remembrance of him, and the fruit of his 
labors may still be seen in the order and 
deportment of those who came in touch 
with his work. 

He was the father of ten children, six 
sons and four daughters^ four of whom 
survive him, and live on and near the 
home where they were raided. In his 
family and the church where he lived and 
labored his chief strength lay in holding 
them, togeth'er. The; members, looked pp~ 
oh Kim as one in whom they could con-

fide. He was ever at his post and al- 
ways the same. 

He died Nov. 30, 1901, aged 85 years, 
1 month and 19 days. Thus lived and 
labored a faithful servant of the Lord, in 
one of the old churches of Rockingham 
County, Virginia. The funeral services 
were held in Linville Creek church, and 
his body was laid to rest in the ceme- 
tery near by.

FATHER'S RETURN." 



BY EDITH BRUBAKER. 

"Mamma, why doesn't papa come?" 
asked little Mary as she stole softly out 
of her bed, to see why her papa had 
not come. "It must be late, mamma; 
I cannoi sleep alone. And why are you 
crying? Just because papa does not 
come? " 

The mother picked up her child, 
pressed it fondly to her breast and said, 
" Yes, dear, I must wait for him. Now 
he stays so late." " And why does he, 
mamma? Doesn't he love you and me 
any more? We must make him, mustn't 
we? Let's just love him a whole lot, and 
then maybe he will stay at home, and 
be kind to us." 

Just then the sound of approaching 
footsteps were heard coming up the grav- 
el walk. " He is coming, mamma; let us 
meet him." She jumped down, ran to 
the door, and held out her hands toward 
him. The mother also went forward, 
for she was touched by what her little 
child had said, although she still loved 
him and was trying to make their home 
happy. But all in vain, the poison ser- 
pent had entered their home and was 
steadily killing her husband day by 'day; 
for he had hardly drawn a sober breath 
for the last year. 

He did not notice his little child, as 
she stood with outstretched arms toward 
him, nor did he hear her say, " Hello, pa- 
pa, we are waiting for. you to-night." He 
rush'elj* toward her," cursing --.to himself, 
saying,, " Oh, the black demon, there he 



stands! ".and he struck his child a heavy 
blow upon the head. 

The mother screamed, rushed forward, 
but only to meet with the same fate. She 
did not fall, but ran on out the door., 
screaming, and then fell to the ground. 

After she had gone out, the drunkard 
stooped down and looked at his little 
child and said, " How nice she sleeps. I 




will lay her on the bed and then I will go 
and get a little more whiskey." 

The cool air soon brought the mother 
to. She then stole quietly into the house, 
praying for both child and husband. All 
was quiet inside. Nowhere could the 
husband be seen. Then going to the 
place where the child had fallen she saw 
that it was gone. She hastened to its 
bed and there found it. She looked at 
it, and then said, " Dead! surely it cannot 
be!" Then rushing out of doors she 
went for the doctor. 

They were soon back, and after a close 
examination he found that the child was 
yet alive. But he said, " I fear it will 
never live." The mother was almost 
sick with grief. 1 "Where is.my husband 
now? Will$?h"et'come back; "and kill Sis 
both? " She told the doctor all about

it, and he sent after her husband. He 
could not be found, and the next morn- 
ing the news came that he had been in a 
fight, and was now in jail. 

Day by day the child grew worse, and 
the doctor said it had brain fever. It 
would call for its father and say, " Come 
back, papa; we like you." Then it would 
say no more about him, and fall asleep. 

One day the child began to cry for its 
father again; so the doctor said, "We 
will bring him and let it see its papa, 
;an.d perhaps it will get better." 

TJiis was done, and the father was 
^brought before his child, " a sober man." 

He looked at the doctor and said, 
" What is the matter with my little 
Mary? " 

"Don't ask, man; you know that blow 
you struck the other night." 

The man said not a word; putting his 
hands to his face, he silently wept. Then 
looking up at the doctor after a few- 
minutes' silence he said, "Do you think 
she will get well? " 

" It is doubtful." 

Just then the child opened its eyes and 
said, " Papa, papa, we want you to "come 
back again; we all like you." 

The father stooped down and kissed 
his child and said, " I am back, Mary, 
always to stay." The doctor told him 
to leave the room, for she must be quiet. 

He then walked into the kitchen, and 
there found his wife sitting by the table 
weeping. He could go no farther, but 
looked at her, and then with a sob he 
broke forth, " My wife, speak to me, say 
you will forgive me and I will be happy, 
for I am miserable. I shall never drink 
another drop of whiskey." 

What rejoicing in that home that night, 
to see the sinner return. He did not go 
back to jail, but stayed by his child's 
bedside and watched the little one as it 
grew back to health. 

" I am so glad you have come back, 
papa; you are such a good papa; I want 
you to stay always with us." 

" I will, Mary." And he kept his word, 
and now they are a happy Christian fam- 
ily.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



MINISTERIAL LIST. 



Corrected up to and Including Dec. 8, 1902. 



For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brother 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections thus made will appear in the Almanac list for 1904.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 53 

THE REA50N WHY. 

WHY has Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer gained the first place as a 
family medicine in thousands of homes all over the world? 

Because it possesses marvelously curative powers and never fails to 
do good. 

Because it not only cleanses the vital fluid, but creates new, rich, 
red blooa. 

Because it makes sound, solid, healthy flesh and builds bone and muscle. 

Because it promotes digestion and acts upon the liver. 

Because it regulates the bowels and strengthens the kidneys. 

Because it quiets the nervous system and induces healthy perspiration. 

Because it is purely vegetable in composition and absolutely harmless. 

Because it can be administered with perfect safety to the delicate in- 
fant as well as adult. 

Because it is cheaper than other preparations when measured by re- 
sults. In short,, it is a family medicine in every sense of the word. 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer has been in constant use for over one 
hundred years and is an article of recognized merit. Thousands have gladly 
testified to its curative powers. It is distinctly different from all other 
medicines, and, although it may have its imitations, it has no substitute. 

Nothing will restore failing health, nothing will so quickly and surely 
bring relief and strength as Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. The baby in 
the cradle, the man in the noon-day of life, the aged at the passing of the 
day, find in it a blessed spring of health. 

If the learned doctors have given your case up as hopeless, do not yet 
despair. Many a one, whose case has been pronounced hopeless, has been 
restored to health and lived to round out a good old age by the use of Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer. Remember it is not a drugstore medicine. 
With wise forethought it was not placed on the market as an article of traf- 
fic, to be hawked about by jobbers and dealers. It is supplied to the people 
direct by special agents appointed in every community, persons whom you 
know and trust and who have a heart for the sufferings of their fellow men. 
Persons living in localities where there are no agents for Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer and who have not previously ordered any, can obtain a 
trial box, containing twelve 35 cent bottles at a special price of $2.00. 

Address at all times, 

DR. PETER FAHRNEY, 

112=114 South Hoyne Avenue, - - = CHICAGO, ILL.

MISSION BOARDS AND THEIR 
ORGANIZATION. 



In the following to make as complete a record 
as possible has been the end sought. After two at- 
tempts the results are as shown herewith. A 
number of Boards made no report whatever and 
hence the organization goes in as it appeared in 
last year's Almanac. It has been thought use- 
ful to indicate the time when each one's term 
expires. It is hoped that next year all Boards 
will make a complete report.

SUPPOSE YOU HAD TWO HANDS WORKING FOR YOU! 

One Hand was a Handsome Fellow, well dressed and well groomed. He could do a prodigious amount 
of work along one or two lines, but outside of the few things he could do well he was no earthly good. He had 
periods of excessive good nature and considerable stretches of mighty bad temper. Wages, $60.00 per month. 

The Other Hand was a Plain Fellow, with a rough spot now and then, but his heart was right. He could 
not do as much work along the " one or two lines," as the handsome hand, but he could turn his ability to 
dozens of different things and was successful at all of them. His temper was even and always agreeable. He 
never made any wonderful "spurts" but he always came out ahead with good measure. Wages, $15.00 per 
month. 

Now Let the Handsome Hand stand for Ohio, Indiana or Illinois; the big amount of work he could do, 
stand for — big crops of corn or any other predominant crop; the things he was no earthly good at, stand for de- 
licious Michigan peaches, famous Michigan potatoes and equally well-known celery; his stretches of bad tem- 
per stand for— disastrous seasons of drought or other bad luck; the high wages stand for — the high price of 
the farms. ' • 

Let the Plain Fellow stand for OUR PART OF MICHIGAN; the dozens of different things in which he 
was equally successful stand for —good profits in wheat, rye, oats, peaches, apples, cherries, plums, straw- 
berries, blackberries, potatoes, sugar beets, celery, cabbages, mint and all the root and grass crops; his even 
and ever agreeable temper stand for — the mild temperature and favorable weather which blesses this part of 
the country; his " always coming out ahead " stand for — the h'gh average of profits obtained on all the many 
different crops; his reasonable wages stand for — the low prices of our lands.

of readers. We will send you a sample copy, if you 
want to see it, but wherever the Almanac goes, some- 
where the Nook will be found. Send us a dollar to 
help pay expenses, and we will send you the magazine

WHY NOT USE 



Brayton's Certain 
Horn Preventer? 



It will prevent the growth of horns on 
your calves. During the ten years it has 
been on the market it has never failed if 
properly applied. It is a liquid and one 
application does the work. Then there is 
no cruel saw; no bloody heads. Your ani- 
mal when grown can't be told from a natural- 
born mulley. We send it to any post office 
prepaid on receipt of 75 cents. It is worth 
all its cost for use on two or three head, but 
each bottle contains enough for one hun- 
dred. 

Agents wanted everywhere at good profit. 
Send for circular.

COME AND BE CURED AT 

Crawfordsville Sanitarium 



CRAWFORDSVILLE, Indiana, is a beautiful 
city of 10,000 inhabitants and is forty-five miles 
northwest of Indianapolis and has three good 
railroads. 

The Sanitarium is owned and operated by Brethren 
of the Dunker church. Methods of treatment are 
Medicine, Surgery, Electricity, X-Ray, Osteopathy, 
Massage and Hot and Cold Water and Vapor Baths. 
We also have a complete outfit of the famous Betz 
Hot-Air Apparatus, in which the patient can be sub- 
jected to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. We have never 
treated a case of Rheumatism that was .not benefited 
by the Hot Air method. We believe fully 75 per cent 
of all cases of rheumatism can be cured by our meth- 
ods of treatment. 

We make a specialty of the following diseases : — 
Rheumatism, Paralysis, Nervous Prostration, Neuralgia, 
Kidney, Liver and Stomach Troubles, Varicose Veins, 
Lumbago, Goitre, Constipation, Lost Manhood, Sup- 
pressed and Painful Menstruation (in fact all diseases 
of the female sex), Piles, Hemorrhoids, Lung Trouble, 
in all forms and degree. 

WRITE US ABOUT YOUR TROUBLES. 

I am personally acquainted with the proprietors of 
the Crawfordsville Sanitarium and have always found 
them to be reliable, trustworthy Brethren.— Eld. D. C.
